Tells the linker to search for a specified library when linking.
This option tells the linker to search for a specified library when linking.
When resolving references, the linker normally searches for libraries in several standard directories, in directories specified by the L option, then in the library specified by the l option.
The linker searches and processes libraries and object files in the order they are specified. So, you should specify this option following the last object file it applies to.
